New Goals


Alright. Here it is... for those of you who don't know, i sell furniture in a warehouse... I answer the calls that come in from the classifieds and set up times to meet customers out at the warehouse. I've complained a few times before about the customers who are always running late...

Well, so here i am, out in the warehouse (which happens to be about 90 degrees out in there cause it surely isn't air conditioned.) I've got a tee-shirt on. I'm sitting on one of the bed and letting the customer browse. And then i see it.... My arms are jiggling!!!

I used to be the one with skinny arms and legs... Now, i've never been skinny... but i always carry my weight around the middle... You know what i'm talking about... a spare tire....

Well, apparently now my arms are finally catching up to my middle... and i said - "THAT'S IT!" I'm done being big... no having any clothes that fit... not caring what i look like or how i feel. I said this was going to be the year to get healthy. it's now July and i'm worse now then i was when i made that goal. so, here it goes. This week.. I've got three weeks with no husband and no kids... so i should have plenty of time to work out, to fix healthy snacks... not processed foods. We'll see in three weeks what i can do. I need to loose 65lbs. In three weeks i should be able to loose the first 10. Right? anyone wanna challenge me?

You can't do it! Is that a challenge enough?

I love that photo of you, and what I think is really cool is the reflection of a person in your sunglasses....it looks like you are looking at a skinny person, and that goes OH SO WELL with your post.

Go for it!!!!!!!! You're tough. Weight watchers helped me lose the baby weight after number three (just an FYI). What is your plan?
